Springtime (especially Easter) is a season of new beginnings, fresh outlooks, and new life. And I find cherry blossoms are often associated with bittersweet occasions or emotions, such as graduations. Now that the gang has graduated, and they're moving on with their lives, I wonder if this guy is moving on too.
I think he deserves a little bit of peace after all this time.This is available as a print here!
I sketched this in my sketchbook on April 16th, 2016 (so happy I actually wrote down the date on my art for once), and spent the past few weeks/month drawing it digitally.
I wanted to challenge myself to color using a different palette, but without using layer modes too much. Although I did use some layer modes in the touch-up process, I'm happy with the result!
And praise God for giving me the patience to paint all of those flowers ;v; I tried to go in small sections and not get overwhelmed.
I originally wanted to upload this on the first day of Spring, but it wasn't finished yet orz
